Welcome to /fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread.

Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about GNU/Linux and share their experiences.

*** Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly GNU/Linux Thread ***

Before asking for help, please check our list of resources.

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Do not dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Resources: Please spend at least a minute to check a web search engine with your question.

THANK YOU BASED NVIDIA. AMD OFFICIALLY BTFO AND BANKRUPT.

>New Ultra-Low Latency Options For Faster Input Response
We know that gaming isn’t just about raw FPS – gamers also want great image quality and faster response times. So we’re introducing a new Ultra-Low Latency mode that gives gamers the ability to get the low latency feeling of high framerates, without having to compromise their graphics quality settings or resolution to get there.
>The NVIDIA Control Panel has -- for over 10 years -- enabled GeForce gamers to adjust the “Maximum Pre-Rendered Frames”, the number of frames buffered in the render queue. By reducing the number of frames in the render queue, new frames are sent to your GPU sooner, reducing latency and improving responsiveness.

What's the point of age controls on websites?
>select your date of birth DD/MM/YYYY
Any kid is going to be smart enough to just lie about this if they really want their deviantart porn
>sign in to continue
There's nothing stopping a child from creating an email address, this just adds an extra step.
"Are you 18 Y/N" would suffice, anything else seems redundant. I figured this might be a legal obligation on sites hosting mature content but no porn sites even bother with it so what gives?
